First I would head over to Twitch Support – https://twitter.com/twitchsupport here they are normally fast to let you know if they are working on any issues you can also see if people are tweeting issues at them.
You can also check ingest and web servers connected to the twitch api at twitchstatus
Lastly another great place would be to head over to the Twitch Reddit found here
Copyright Free Music List
Thankfully Twitch recently came out with their own solution to this problem. The launch of Twitch Music Library. Here twitch has partnered with artists to bring you music you can use in your streams and content. If you are an artist you can also submit your own music that can be approved if you meet the requirements. Always make sure to use approved copyright free music so your VOD’s do not get muted or other legal issues.
All that they ask is that you put this in your twitch profile to show support for the artist and let people know where you get the great music from!
There are also You-Tube Channels that offer copyright free music you can use in your content as long as you give credit to the artist.

You can also find free graphics at theses other twitch sites:
Twitch Graphic sizes can vary depending on the resolution of the image and if it is displaying on a wide screen or not. It is always best to use a Hi-Rez image so it will look good even on a 4k monitor. If you are getting custom stream design make sure that your artist understands the requirements and has done prior work.
